The Validity and Reliability of The Turkish Version of The Social Curiosity Scale

Serdar KarakullukçuErdinç KarakullukçuBetül BalAysun KazakAyşe Karakullukçu

Social curiosity is defined as being interested in other people’s behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. This study aims to determine the validity and reliability of a Turkish version of the Social Curiosity Scale (SCS) developed by Renner. The Turkish SCS was applied to 497 university students. The retest was carried out with 243 students. Construct validity was evaluated by factor analysis. Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s omega coefficients were examined to determine the internal consistency of the scale. The intraclass correlation coefficient was calculated for the test-retest reliability. Confirmatory factor analysis was applied to evaluate the degree of consistency of the factor structure. Exploratory factor analysis revealed that Turkish SCS offers a 2-factor structure. In factor analysis, the Kaiser-Meyer Olkin value of the dataset was found to be 0.786, and the p-value for Bartlett’s test was <0.001. Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s omega coefficients were 0.763 and 0.757, respectively, suggesting good internal consistency. In terms of test-retest reliability, the intraclass correlation coefficient was calculated as 0.847 (95% CI = 0.801-0.883). The obtained goodness of fit indices indicate that the two-factor model had an acceptable fit to the data. This study reveals that the Turkish SCS is a valid and reliable measurement tool for social curiosity measurement.
